New Dwelling Place

After a long, hard weekend of moving (even 8 miles up the road is tough in my world…) I am relieved to report that most of our stuff is in the new apartment, and it’s even slightly organized. I am itching to get the living room area set up so that I can get all our books and movies out again. I am very pleased that internet and cable are already in place, and I must admit that even though the connection is quite slow at times, it is WONDERFUL to have it in my own home. Besides, while waiting for pages to load or photos to upload, I can watch the Discovery Channel or the Travel Channel or…any number of other things (four-wheeler races on Versus?)

I can also enjoy one of the best views in Bar Harbor (minus the DOT truck of course…):

While it doesn’t rate higher than my creek/marsh/pretty-yellow-farmhouse view of the summer, and as a dwelling the apartment lacks the fire pit and kayaking access, and I’ll have to keep the volume of the music and movies a little lower…I can’t complain. It will be nice for the winter months, with plenty of space to craft and bake and, of course, read. 🙂


  1. You got a great view, a good book, and a satisfied mind. What else could a human want?

  2. Congrats on completing the move and that wonderful view. Bibliophiles are terrible to move (the entire first truck was filled with books kind of thing) so good to hear you weathered it well. See you for Kristin in a few days.

  3. I love your view. I find that having something like an island out in the water is much more visually interesting than just totally open water.

  4. Gorgeous view! I edited out the DOT truck in my mind’s eye.

    Did you weed out any books for the move, or take them all up the road with you?

  5. Dawn – Erm…yeah, I took them all with me. 🙂

    Thomas – I agree, and the lobster boats and cruise ships make things interesting too!

    Frances – I only had three boxes, fortunately, but it’s only going to get worse. Note to self: find permanent housing!

    Sandy – Just add a beer (chocolate stout?) and bliss is complete. 🙂
